2017 vintage.

A: Pours a brown-tinted black, and manages just a thin ring of dense tan head with an aggressive pour. Exceedingly persistent. A few long streaks of lacing.

S: Sweet baker’s chocolate in the forefront, alongside vanilla, bourbon, and oak, with a hint of roast that’s almost char-like.

T: Rich, sweetish chocolate is balanced slightly more with some roastiness (nearly burnt) and dark coffee, but the balance is still towards the chocolate. Pretty well integrated bourbon, oak, and vanilla which round out the flavor and last through the finish.

M: Full bodied, chewy, with a sharp medium carbonation. Warming with a slight alcohol bite.

O: Very respectable barrel aged RIS. Doesn’t quite have the complexity or depth of other examples, but tasty and well executed. I could do without the char-like flavor, though.

2018 bomber, and I'm very excited to be able to try this one. Pours black and moderately thick but not syrupy, with very little head that eventually burbles up from below. The nose is a bit subdued, with cacao nibs, vanilla, red wine tannins, and malt balls, plus a tiny hint of black cherry and plum on occasion. Big bourbon notes on the tongue that amplify the aromas and provide some spice. Punching above its weight class at 10% abv. A nice, moderately full mouthfeel and boozy finish.

I will definitely try to get another bottle of this to put away and age. I love it.
